Teenage Canadian girls' suicides show sexual cyber-bulling 'getting worse': Expert

Washington, Apr 13 (ANI): The suicide cases of two young Canadian girls, who hung themselves after allegedly being raped, shows cyber-bullying is getting worse, and is pervasive, an expert has said.

Earlier reports had surfaced that two teen girls, Rehtaeh Parsons and Audrie Pott, committed suicide after allegedly being raped and then having pictures of the sexual assault distributed electronically among their peers.

On Thursday, three teen boys were arrested for sexual battery against Pott, a California 15-year-old who was allegedly raped in September 2012.

Now the question arises will the teens also be charged for sending photos of the alleged assault?

According to CBS news, sexual cyber-stalking expert Danielle Citron doubts it.

Citron, a professor at the University of Maryland Frances King Carey School of Law, pointed out that 'law enforcement is behind the times on this'.

She stressed that as it becomes easier to post or text or comment on a photo, sexual cyber-bulling and cyber-stalking is becoming 'more pervasive, more common, and more acceptable.'

It's not getting better, it's getting worse, she added. (ANI)
